Internet "Kill" Switch Proposed

It appears the Obama Administration has now targeted the internet in a new Senate bill proposed by Senator Lieberman that will give the president the power to literally “shut down” the internet with a flip of a switch. And of course, this would also include the manufacture of yet another government agency complete with “Czars” and government bureaucrats to administer this watchdog operation. What will this new bill accomplish? It will save us from a “cyber-security emergency according to the story in this morning’s Huffington post.

Think about this logically for a moment. Do you bank online? Are your retirement investments online? Is there a potential for the government to seize control illegally? What about in the future?

This is just another scary step on the road to total government control over her citizens. This just may work better than all the proposed gun control attempts that never seem to go far enough to give the liberal politicians ultimate control of the lowly citizens.

I guess the media can always come up with a "good" argument to support the Obama Administrations quest for total control over our freedoms

What say you?


  1. Wow. just another way to steal our rights away from us. Gov. has to be in control of everything dont they? Seems like they could use this effort, money and time on something much more important.

    BP struck a main artery and our mother earth is bleeding out, killing everything. Yet not one post on here about it. What the hell. I know its on the news a lot, but it still seems to be an issue. Even localy. Wheres the post about the media blackouts and restricted fly zones? Or the lack of effort being put into this problem? Who cares about Emo kids? Or cats and weeds? F. U. B. P.

  2. our wonderful communist in charge and his boot to the throat of the nation as he takes a dump on the constitution of our great nation

  3. Maybe he'll shut down this blog and raise the communities IQ

  4. Bet the Dick Cheney wishes he had that switch.

  5. It would create a new part of Homeland Security called the National Center for Cybersecurity and Communications (NCCC).

    Just what we need. More money going to a pointless organization.

    I don't like the idea that they can shut it down when they see fit. Its almost reminiscent of China and their intense internet laws.

    It may be good in some measures. For example, use it on sites with child porn. If someone is perusing the site and it allows their internet connection to be shut off and flags their IP address---could be helpful.

    Jake, someone who does not know the difference between communities and community's should not criticize other people's IQs. Good job making yourself look like an idiot.

  7. Fish,
